Storyline

This is a story in 2005. Christy Lam is a typical city girl born and raised in Hong Kong. She is a month from turning 30, and has just begun to cope with the same struggles shared by most girls of the same age: the almost unbearable stress at work, her aging but annoying parents, and her seemingly stable yet stagnant relationship. All of these only add to her fear for this next chapter of her life. Wong Tin-Lok, on the other hand, is also turning 30 soon, but leads a vastly different life. She has never been in love, and her job is taking her nowhere. And yet, she has always kept an optimistic attitude towards life. On the verge of her next chapter, she makes a bold decision to just pick up her bags and fulfill her childhood dream. They have never met each other, and their personalities are night and day. But as fate would have it, Christy makes a temporary move into Wong's apartment. Through exploring Wong's diary, Christy not only discovers that they share the same birthday, but ...

A strong start
26 December 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a career driven women who is turning thirty in a month's time.

The film starts off very strong, as it realistically depicts a woman's fight in her career and her love life. The dialogs are good, because they are way more mature than most Hong Kong films for the mass market. The music is worth a mention too, as it features many tasteful English songs and also a few Cantonese classics.

However, when the film reaches the end, it lost focus on suddenly becomes the story of another woman. It is ok if the cheerful woman inspires the career woman, but the cheerful woman's subplot completely hijacks the story. I am unable to see the parallel between the two women, or how the cheerful woman inspires the career woman. If the ending could be changed, I would have liked it even more.
